ought to be fired immediately. a sick joke that nobody ought to take seriously. paul ryan's budget is the same he put forth the last two years in a row. hasn't he learned anything? he would destroy medicare and medicaid, give the wealthy yet another tax break, put most of the burden on the poor and middle class and repeal obama care. this budget is going nowhere. it will be dead on arrival in the senate. it is pure fiscal mastur va tion. yet paul ryan gets credit for being a serious thinker. i will tell you this if paul ryan is a serious thinker i am an astronaut. take a look at the budget. doesn't add up. tomorrow, congressman keith ellison and peter welch, oh, boy. can't wait for that. come back and join us right here tomorrow. >> this is "the bill press show."

budget committee meets today to consider a budget plan from chairman paul ryan released yesterday. you can tune in at 10:30 on c- span3 4 those proceedings. that budget plan was released yesterday. it aims to cut $4.60 trillion in spending over the course of 10 years. that depends on a couple things, eliminating spending connecting to the affordable care act, and the changes to how medicare is administered. we want to get your thoughts on that plan released from paul ryan yesterday. 4.6 trillion cuts in spending over the next 10 years to achieve a balanced budget, he says. here's how you can weigh in this morning -- you can also reach out to us on social media as well. on twitter. on facebook. .r send us an e-mail a representative paul ryan has an overview of what he wants to achieve with a spending plan released yesterday. he says -- this a couple pages to that if you want to go to the house budget committee paid to see the rest of it. reuters has a breakdown of what the budget entails. it says the latest version ends cronyism, -- senate democrats will meet later on this morning -- ac
. in an interview with abc news, the president slammed paul ryan's insistence on deep, drastic spending cuts saying we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. in fact for the next ten years, it's going to be in a sustainable place. the question is, can we do it smarter, can we do it better? if the only goal of a budget was to make it as small as possible, congressman paul ryan would be your man. his budget reduces the deficit by an additional $2.75 trillion compared to senator patty murray's plan. but the race to a budget is not the goal of a budget. foumtly a budget is a reflection of your core values, and which investments you believe are necessary. to those who say government should treat its budgets the way households do, it's important to point out that a family's budget works the same way. parents don't pull their kids out of school or deliberately starve themselves or stop going to the doctor for the singular doing mattic purpose of spending as little as possible. and taking out kretic is both part of american culture and key to growing the economy. for instance, 71% of americans ta
. congressman paul ryan taking in that budget cuts, as well. republicans put forth their own spending blueprint. response.e republican >> president obama and senate democrats say they want a balanced approach to our fiscal issues but their budget is ever balance, ever. taxesd they want to raise to fuel more spending. we know where this path leads, straight into a debt crisis. what does look like? first lenders will demand a higher interest rate. higher interest rates across the country will skyrocket on credit cards, mortgages, car loans. if interest rates rise debt payments will overwhelm all other items in the budget. the debt will overwhelm our economy. our finances will collapse. the safety net will unravel. the most honorable will suffer. you think this cannot happen here? just look at europe. we do not accept that future, not for our children and country. today we invite president obama to do with president clinton did, to work with republicans in congress to balance the budget. he can join in the efforts or he can choose the status quo. but he must choose. the american people deserve an
budget committee paul ryan also expected to speak. yesterday we heard from party leaders that spoke about the future. they didn't really hold back any punches. look at some of that from yesterday, at cpac. >> the premise from the left is clear. they think economic growth depends on a huge, bloated federal government that just keeps growing. that's ridiculous. >> people who disagree on all sorts of things in the real world work together all the time on things they do agree on and there has to be a movement in america for people who believe in limited government, constitutional principles and a free enterprise system and that should be us. >> the gop of old has grown stale and moss-covered. >> our party is enqum pered by an inconsistent approach to freedom. the new gop will need to embrace liberty in both the economic and the personal sphere. [cheers and applause] martha: big response yesterday to rand paul and others. rick perry also got a very positive response from the crowd. we'll bring you highlights as they come in. we'll keep an eye on it. mitch mcconnell is speaking now. more coming
to learn from his mistakes. also, romney's former running mate paul ryan talks about where america could be heading and it's just short of an economic apocalypse. low testosterone, you should know that axiron is here. the only underarm treatment for low t. that's right, the one you apply to the underarm. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18. axiron can transfer to others through direct contact. women, especially those who are or who may become pregnant, and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair or increased acne in women may occur. report these signs and symptoms to your doctor if they occur. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medications. do not use if you have prostate or breast cancer. serious side effects could include increased risk of prostate cancer; worsening prostate symptoms; decreased sperm count; ankle, feet, or body swelling; enlarged or painful breasts; problems breathing while sleeping; and blood clots in the legs. common side effects include skin redness o
guess that theory of evolution was echoed by paul ryan today. i want to play sound regarding once again the fiscal ideas that he touted in 2012, rearing their heads in 2013. let's take a listen. >> a balanced budget is a reasonable goal because it returns government to its proper limits and focus. when government overreaches, it doesn't just hurt our paychecks, it hurts our quality of life. we need to make room for community, for that vast middle ground between the government and the individual. >> you know, governor, the part of me that sticks out there is use of the word "community." i think that's been a priority that's lost specifically in the ryan budget insofar as it sort of tears asunder the social fabric. what do you think about him couching this in softer terms. >> i hate to say it, he has become an empty suit. this budget is a joke. for example, he says he would get rid of obama care, he would get rid of the benefits but kept the tax benefits to balance the budget, which isn't balanced. gives tax cuts to people that make a million dollars a year, cuts medicaid benefits, privat
to have to cut kids, cut kids. that's not what paul ryan's budget does, but listen to the democrats the rhetoric, propaganda, misinformation and frankly the lies they continue to tell. let's roll this tape. >> you look at his principles, you look at his vision and they're a nightmare for america, he wants americans to work until they die. he wants poor people who get sick not to be able to see a doctor and not to get the care he needs. not to get better, he wants them to die. >> this is the alternative to balance, it results in unfair tax hikes on middle class americans and results in undue burden on middle class americans through the cuts envisioned. >> this republican budget once again makes an ideological, uncompromising approach to addressing that budget challenge. >> perhaps the best thing i can tell you about the republican budget is that here we go again. >> yesterday americans got their first look at this year's ryan republican budget. turns out it it looks like last year's ryan republican budget and it wasn't the only one. i wasn't the only one that said, gee-whiz, not agai
of the republican party's biggest stars are speaking. congressman paul ryan talked about the federal budget. and donald trump had a word or two about immigration. >> when it comes to immigration, you know that the 11 million illegals even if given the right to vote, you know, you're going to have to do what's right, but the fact is 11 million people will be voting democratic. >> historically we've paid a little less than one-fifth of our income in taxes to the federal government each year. but the federal government has spent a lot more. so our budget matches spending with income. >> again, mitt romney is to speak this hour. his first since losing the presidential race. we'll go there live as he starts talking. but first let's bring in our brianna keilar who is at the conference in maryland. so, brianna, this is romney's first speech. highly anticipated. >> reporter: highly anticipated his first major speech, fredricka, since his loss in november. we saw him give an interview recently to fox news channel. but as you can imagine it's very different i think sitting down one-on-one with someon
batted cleanup. thank you for that. [laughter] >> would have to say this for congressman paul ryan. unfortunately being wrong doesn't earn you any points when it comes to helping senior citizens across. the budget for 2014 this is bad for seniors as his budget last year and the year before that and the year before that. there's a reason you are. all rights budget is march madness when it comes to seniors. thankfully the american people have made it clear they reject the approach and the house republicans brazen attempt to balance the budget on the backs of seniors is unacceptable. this year's budget is in a path to prosperity for america's seniors. it's a path to poverty. the nine budget includes ill conceived unclear shift more medicare costs to seniors. once again, ryan medicare voucher schemes are short on detail spirit we don't know how much missing or so pay out of pocket, but here's so we do know. if it was his budget, ryan proposes to replace guarantee of health coverage at the voucher program beneficiaries can use to purchase private health insurance or join some version of
. this was a great moment for this president to be -- if he wanted to reach across the aisle to ask paul ryan or newt gingrich to represent the catholics of america. >> i don't understand what chris mathews was talking about there. i would like to make a quick omment on the other video. but timothy dolan, cardinal from new york, for people who think public life does not have a religious element or element of faith, they turn to cardinal dolan. he is interested in public service, engaging with politicians, he's friendly with paul ryan. he was the archbishop in milwaukee. he spoke at both conventions this past year. e was doubted as a papal contender. i think with francis, larry is right, it doesn't make since to compare him to pennsylvania's bob casey. it is a wonderful moment for catholics worldwide to celebrate the new pope, he chose the name francis and to make it about . erican politics, no thanks >> i want to remember that. he said i was right. >> you don't hear that a lot, do you? >> let me tell you about chris matthews. years ago when he was doing "hardball" and he did not know who i was. he ha
paul ryan's budget plan comes up this week. hear a veryting to spirited debate both in the senate and house. we will have republicans and differenton very sides of which should be done. >> how does paul ryan's budget compared to the democratic proposal? cut spending a lot more. the's budget would reduce deficit by almost $6 trillion in 10 years. reduce ay budget would little under $2 trillion in 10 years. >> what other groups are offering their own budget plan docks water they likely to focus on? >> -- who will be issuing their own budget plans? budget will be similar to patty murray's budget in the senate. increases,ave tax but neither would balance the budget in 10 years. also the congressional black caucus and the congressional progressive caucus will be introducing budget. it's possible a ryan version could be introduced in the senate. >> what is likely to happen in the senate this week? >> it will be democrats making the case for the patty murray budget. convince someto democratic senators who may not support that budget. they will have to sell it to democratic senators as we
a rerun of "the golden girls." we got rand paul. we got marco rubio. we got paul ryan. and the other guys, they got hillary and joe biden. >> yikes. that's senate minority leader mitch mcconnell yesterday poking fun at the democrats, leading contender for 2016. the come, as you might imagine, ruffled feathers, even in his own statement kentucky's democratic party chairman wants mcconn toll apologize. an into the political playground we go. talk about turning an awkward tv moment into a moneymaker, senator marco rubio's political action committee is selling water bottles with his name on them at cpac this weekend. as you can see, they are charging $25 a bottle. if you remember, rubio made that memorable lung for his water bottle in his middle of the state of union rebuttal last month. >>> and it sounds like a reality show but actually the white house kicking off a new audio series called "beinged ed "beie a listen. >> a couple guys in their hunting shirts i'm serving a meal to, along with folks you see in the background. >> the white house says the idea is for people to know the story beh

a chance really to see firsthand the rolling out of what we call the ryan budget. paul ryan as the chairman of our budget committee once again leads, i believe, the intellectual and thought process on talking about the future that we should have in this country. certainly the budget is that primer, that guiding post, that opportunity for us to lay out a philosophy about what republicans stand for, and today the american people are having a chance to hear from our colleagues, the democrats. of course as you listen to our colleagues, our friends, the democrats talk, everything about a budget is all about if you're a republican, us harming the middle class, us ruining the country, headed in the wrong direction. that is because they have taken the simple approach to they will try and fund everything. they will try and fund hospitals. they will fund airports. they will fund schools. they will do all these amazing things. and the facts of the case are is that that process and that future does not work. paul ryan yesterday, before the rules committee, very carefully, argued the point that really i
i heard, i feel that mitt romney had a real partnership with paul ryan in taking a position to advance the ideas, but that did not happen in the campaign, and the vice presidential selection was more of that. >> and liz mair of goproud, thank you. >> thank you. >>> and now the independent senator from maine is going to join us next to talk about the issues tearing the party apart. >>> and another carnival cruise ship having problems within a month. [ male announcer ] ah... retirement. sit back, relax, pull out the paper and what? another article that says investors could lose tens of thousands of dollars in hidden fees on their 401(k)s?! seriously? seriously. you don't believe it? search it. "401(k) hidden fees." then go to e-trade and roll over your old 401(k)s to a new e-trade retirement account. we have every type of retirement account. none of them charge annual fees and all of them offer low cost investments. why? because we're not your typical wall street firm that's why. so you keep more of your money. e-trade. less for us. more for you. that's why. so you keep more o
what paul ryan proposed a few days ago. so that is a big difference. it made it easier for him to balance the budget by having lower levels of defense spending. would've been almost impossible to balance the budget over 10 years. >> what about what was put forth by senate democrats and house members? the increases that he wants or about $600 over 10 years. democrats want an increase and i'm sure republicans way for democrats to figure out where they are. democrats are talking about getting rid of tax breaks and taxes. limiting the values of certain tax breaks. that is what they are talking about right now. they want to get rid of the tax breaks and get rid of them. >> the paul ryan plan a party takes into account these rates approved by congress. >> yes, that is right. about $600 billion in new taxes over 10 years. it helps to balance the budget. >> any surprises from the senate budget committee markup yesterday? >> well, a little surprised that she was able to hold the line. ten republicans and democrats on the committee. but she could not afford to use a single one. she had b
party will speak at cpac. paul ryan will speak, wayne la pierre and later today, rick santorum will take the stage. mitt romney will speak later this afternoon. cpac, the largest gop gathering of its kind and the opportunity to refine the party's message. al cardenis joins us, from national harbor, maryland, chair of the american conservative union. welcome, al. >> just a mithank you, carol. great to have cnn. >> glad are you speaking with us this morning. some conservatives have talked about being more inclusive and yet gay republican groups like go proud aren't included in cpac. rob portman and dick cheney have come out in support of same-sex marriage. will the gop change position? will cpac ever change position and allow gay republicans to sit at the table? >> look, there are a few ground rules here at cpac. one, we discuss all of our serious subjects with civility. we love and respect each other, and we have had two panels yesterday, almost back to back. we had a panel post hosted by our friends involving advocates of the gay meaning movement and another panel arguing in favor of tra
the election to minorities and women. there has been a lot of talk about that and running mate, paul ryan says it's really not helpful to talk but republicans should be doing to actually meeting people to court them. listen. >> we can't just talk about these communities. we have to talk about with them. we have to engage them because leaders, leaders don't just speak up. they listen too. >> reporter: ryan as the party's former vice president nominee. he insists he is not thinking about running in 2016 but he has tremendous amount of work to do. it will be a lost attention and with it a lot of scrutiny which could make it both a lot of attention and harder to run for office for the presidency. >> harris: we see the speaking continues. in a couple of hours. big headliner for tonight. >> reporter: jeb bush, former florida governor will be speaking tonight. he has for years said he is not the slightest bit interested in running for president. couple weeks ago, that all changed. he quite dramatically he is no longer saying no, but this is the 2013 conservative political action conference. all of th
to the business of the day. you sit on the house budget committee, and you're chairman. paul ryan came out this week with the day before the president met with the republican caucus with his budget for 2014 which looks a lot like the budget for 2013 which looked a lot like the budget for 2012. >> except for -- >> bill: it's worse? >> it's worse. it's more cynical than the prior budgets because what it did was, they spent all last year campaigning against the affordable care act. and about slashing money out of medicare. >> that's been actually their mantra for two elections now. well, in the budget, he repeals the law, affordable care all of the provisions of the law, keeps the $700,000,000,000 worth of save savings, keeps the trillion dollars worth of taxes under affordable care act. >> that's what makes this budget come close to balancing in 10 years. so all of the things he campaigned against, he put in his budget. >> uh-huh. >> then said we are going to take the money out of medicare and we are going to tax you but we are not going to give you the benefit
? we should make that promise, it is doable. even paul ryan whose budget did not balance the budget comes out with one that does. >> how to make it personal? joe made this case and we wrote articles about this. during the sequestration battle, obama gave his speech about the horrific sequestration and how bad it was. he was surrounded by the village people. he had a person behind him with a hard hat and make an native american. when john boehner came out he had a doomsday clock behind him, counting down the days to the sequester. he wanted to point the blame to obama. we should take credit for this. for the first time we're going to sort of cut spending at the federal level and we're going to talk a how that will help people in the long run. >> one quick thing. i ask people at cpac what they think about the second obama term and the real challenge for conservatives is you're dealing with a democratic senate and democratic white house. it is easy to propose a 10 year balanced budget like the conservatives are doing in the house but that is not going to be political reality in the sho
budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know that they are getting and obama never talks about the trillion dollars in tax increases starting this year for obamacare. 1.6 and 1.5 is a 3 trillion-dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passes and a never balances because they turn round and spend another -- hundreds of millions of dollars more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. they do more spending with more taxes but with the brian budget does is very interesting for the republican future. it reforms entitlement, protect
-span. >> in his weekly address, president obama focuses on a energy policy. and representative paul ryan gives the republican response. >> hi, everybody. as a nation, our top priority is growing our economy and creating good middle class jobs. that's why this week i'm speaking to you from the argonne national laboratory in illinois, because few areas hold as much promise as what they're focused on right here harnessing american energy. talking after years of about it, we're finally poised to take control of our energy future. we produce more oil than we have in 15 years. we import less oil than we have in 20 years. we've doubled the amount of renewable energy we generate from sources like wind and solar with tens of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we're producing more natural gas than ever before -- with hundreds of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we've supported the first new nuclear power plant since the 1970s. and we're sending less carbon pollution into the environment than we have in nearly 20 years. so we're making real progress. but over the past few weeks, we got a remin
think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of, they don't know that they're hitting, they haven't gotten a lot of press attention, obama never talks about the trillion dollars of tax increases starting this year for obamacare. so 1.6 plus 1.5, that's a $3 trillion dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passed. and, of course, it never balances because they turn around and spend another, um, more money, hundreds of billions more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. so they do more spending with more taxes. what the ryan budget does and why i think it's very interesting for the republican future is that it reform
by budget chairman paul ryan. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the order of the house of january 3, 2013, the chair will now recognize members from lists submitted by the majority and minority leaders for morning hour debate. the chair will alternate recognition between the parties with each party limited to one hour and each member other than the majority and minority leaders and the minority whip each, to five minutes but in no event shall debate continue beyond 11:50 a.m. the chair recognizes the gentleman from illinois, mr. quigley, for five minutes. mr. quigley: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise today to call for continued reforms to our health care system. the affordable care act was a huge step in the right direction, but we can do more, because the path we're on is unsustainable. the u.s. spends approximately 18% of its g.d.p. on health, close to twice as much as other developed nations and yet we don't have better health care outcomes. health care costs are rising faster than inflation and wages, meaning they are eating a larger portion of americans' paychecks and the
last year's presidential campaign republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan claimed he thought social security was an important program. his policies didn't support that necessarily. that's what he said. because when he explained his father died tragically as a teenager his mom was able to keep the family afloat thanks to social security survivor benefits. new jersey republican chris christie was no federal tax spend liberal but when hurricane sandy devastatf devastated his states he became one of the most vocal advocate for the government to spend billions immediately to help out his and other states. for his republican governor rick squlot spent years and millions of dollars of his own money fighting obama care tooth and nail now says he supports that laws expansion of medicaid in his state. the governor said his change of heart came when his own elderly mother died last year. empathy, especially in elected officials, is a good thing. but there is also something frustratingly blinkered and limited about this form of persuasion. if it's going to take every anti-gay politician
and the party of old. >> bret: we also heard from paul ryan today. take a listen. >> we don't hide behind our beliefs. we argue for them. a budget is a list of numbers. expression of thegones philosophy. our budget draws a sharp contrast with the left. it says to the people unmistakable terms, they are the party of shared hardship. we are the party of equal opportunity. >> bret: charles? >> i think it shows how strong a bench we have and how good the prospects are in the future. i'm less cynical than my compadres here. i thought romney gave gracious speech. the heartening element is the way a young crowd, quite conservative crowd cheered and greeted him with equal grace. which was nice. usually you pick a loser to -- kek loser to the curb in politics. that was the opposite. >> bret: portman announcement, john, significant? >> it's significant. i'm sympathetic to the position on this. the politics are problematic because the idea he only changes the position when it affected him with his own son. that will have repercussions. >> bret: chuck, north korea, beefing um securit up security,e defens
. no household can run that way. >> let me challenge you on this point because here is paul ryan this week, and he laid out very clearly what he thought the job was. let me play that. >> we think we owe the country a balanced budget. we think we owe the country solutions to big problems that are plaguing our nation -- a debt crisis on the horizon, a slow-growing economy, people trapped in poverty. we're showing our answers. >> right, but the answers rely on $700 billion in savings from interest. most of the deficit reduction comes from repealing the president's health care reform, which nobody thinks is going to happen. so how seriously should this be viewed as a roadmap for a balanced budget? >> it should be very serious, because budgets -- >> you're not going to repeal obama care. >> budgets are blue prints and priorities. we lay out. we think obama care should be repealed. the majority of americans agree with us. but we also think tax reforms should happen so you can grow the economy. if you allow these debts to continue to grow, they crowd out the private sector, crowd out the opportun
, borrowing more and spending more is not a path to prosperity. >> that was congressman paul ryan on the hill. pleased that democrats are bringing bunts budgets to the table. maryland congressman chris van holland is the ranking member on the house budget committee. he joins me now, congressman van holland. good afternoon to you. >> good afternoon to you, luke. >> i want to get your take on house republicans are panning the democratic budgets that will be voted on tomorrow. your budget, the black caucus budget, the progressive budget, various ones have no chance of becoming law. is there any worry that the idea that republicans are putting forward that our budget balances, our budget balances, a very good sound bite that can work in mid-term elections. whereas you guys' isn't balanced until about 2040. is there any worry that the message could take hold and cause problems for you in the 2014 mid-terms? >> no, luke, for this reason -- the republican budget, the ryan budget balances on the backs of middle income taxpayers. it balances by violating our commitment to our seniors, through the vouc
committee chair, paul ryan, laid out his budget plan. sadly, it's just more of the same. like a bad record, this year's republican proposal is virtually the same document as the one he proposed last spring. it harms the middle class. it harms low-income americans, and it is especially bad for women and families. now, they have framed this budget and called it a prosperity one, a prosperity plan. but this budget should be called the road to austerity, because it is a plan that is most noteworthy for the rather harsh austerity it demands of the many and the lavish benefit it extends to the few. it clearly envisions a rising tide of selective tax cuts that would lift all yachts, but leave many dinghies behind. our republican friends like to talk about making the hard choices, but what they propose here would make it much harder for millions of americans and also make things much easier for a fortunate few. that's their plan. now, specifically under this plan, he has this new goal of balancing the budget in 10 years. and to accomplish this, he slashes funding safety net programs that, for seni

in strong support today of the balanced budget put forward by my friend and chairman paul ryan. and the reasonable and practical approach that this budget committee has taken while they budget hardworking taxpayer dollars. mr. speaker, this budget debate goes deeper than spread sheets and focuses on the longevity of the american dream. today we are considering a republican budget that actually balances in 10 years. calls for pro growth, pro job tax reform -- pro-growth, pro-job tax reform and strengthens medicare for our seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work

because of budget constraints. the 2014 budget plan put out by chairman paul ryan would balance the budget in 10 years and put in place medicare changes. the chamber should finish work on boating on the measure on wednesday. here is tuesday's debate. mr. ryan: i bring forward and present the budget resolution for the fiscal year 2014. we believe that we owe the american people a responsible balanced budget and that is precisely what we are bringing to the floor today. our budget balances the budget within 10 years and it does so without raising taxes. balancing the budget will help us foster a healthier economy, it will help us create jobs. in fact, two leading economists released a study analyzing our budget and its positive effects on the economy and jobs. in the first year they said it would, quote, boost the economy immediately, increasing both of our economy by a whole percentage point which translates into about 500,000 jobs. by the end of the budget window, according to these economists, it would add 3% of economic growth to the economy. that's 1.7 million jobs in one year alone, ab

: without objection. r. lujan: mr. speaker, the house republican budget unveiled yesterday by chairman paul ryan is the repeat of the same tea party principles that have already been rejected by the american people. house republicans are once again determined to place the burden of deficit reduction on the backs of middle-class families while the wealthiest americans get yet another tax break. after wasting valuable time last congress, voting more than 30 times to repeal health care reform rather than focus on jobs and the economy, the republican budget again calls for its repeal. in addition, their budget ends medicare as we know it, and surprise, surprise, turning it into a voucher program that reduces benefits and leaves seniors paying higher out-of-pocket costs. while this budget blueprint is still lacking in specific details, it is clear that in order to meet the spending targets it outlines, house republicans will slash investments in key areas that are essential to economic growth and job creation, education, job training, science and research will all be on the chopping block in ord
